HouseLogic Presents a Water-Saving Bathroom Makeover and Chance to Win $100

Washington, DC – January 24, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) —, a comprehensive website about all aspects of homeownership from the National Association of Realtors®, has launched a new online sweepstakes. Readers who leave comments on a blog featured at the site will have a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card. The sweepstakes is part of a special do-it-yourself blog series, “Water-Wise Bathroom Redo.”

HouseLogic is giving away the gift cards to four lucky winners. Anyone who comments on the blog series will be eligible to win. The contest, which runs from January 23 through February 19, is open to all HouseLogic visitors.

“HouseLogic really drives home the value of homeownership,” said Pamela Geurds Kabati, NAR senior vice president for HouseLogic. “The site offers myriad tools to help homeowners plan and organize their home projects, and gives them practical advice that helps them save money and enhance their home’s value. The Water-Wise Bathroom Redo series is a great case study about a homeowner who took on a bathroom remodel to make water-saving upgrades. HouseLogic readers can follow the progress through the four weeks of the series, learning helpful tips they might apply in their own home projects along the way.”

HouseLogic visitors can enter the sweepstakes by leaving a comment on a blog posted by guest blogger Preston Koerner, founder of, about his do-it-yourself, water-saving bathroom makeover. Each contest period will begin when a blog post is published and will continue for seven days thereafter. Readers are encouraged to visit the HouseLogic blog frequently to check for new posts and enter to win once each week. One winner will be randomly drawn from eligible entries received during each period.

“I’ve been a reader and subscriber of HouseLogic since the first time I landed on the site about a year ago. The site has an abundance of information and a binder feature, so I can save ideas and articles for reference later,” said Koerner. “After using the site, I decided it was time to take on a renovation project at home to beautify my bathroom in a way that would conserve water at the same time. I was able to plan my project, learn what other homeowners want in their bathroom, and set realistic budget expectations. I feel confident saying HouseLogic is the best online resource for owners like me looking for practical tips, ideas, and guidance at home.”
